Tadashi Shoji Nail Art Contest Entry

I was so honoured to be invited by the people at Tadashi Shoji, a clothing designer, to create a nail art design based on pieces from their SS13 collection. Of course, I jumped at the chance and here we are today!
Myself and a few other incredible nail bloggers have submitted nail art and the winning design will inspire a limited edition clutch bag from the designer.
You can vote for your favourite every day, obviously it’s very much appreciated if you vote for me but the other designs are amaaazing so I’d totally understand if they steal your vote.

My design was based on this dress. As soon as the model cam out on to the runway wearing this, I audibly gasped and I knew it would be the one to inspire my nails. I really can’t resist a pretty blue!
I used Barry M White as my base colour and then stamped using Bundle Monster plate BM21 and No7 Poolside Blue. I was going to freehand the lace design but I chickened out at the last minute and decided to play it safe with a stamp!
I used No7 Poolside Blue again for the half moons using a small nail art brush and finally I added an accent around the moon using GOSH Pool Party. I used two coats of Essence Better Than Gel Nails to finish it off.
